If you want something other than traditional black
leather or leatherette, you can get a very cool result
with canvas-weight textiles.
What sets a textile apart on classic cameras, is a real
surface in place of the artificial one you're
accustomed to. A fabric's appearance, texture and
structure are all one and the same. And fiber
construction has endless detail, for a striking
contrast against smooth metal.
The bolder colors here might seem cartoonish on
embossed leather or leatherette. But they come across
as well-ordered, even elegant, in the form of a woven.

These are all translucent to some degree. Light
bounces among the fibers, and on lighter tones,
reaches down to the camera's metal shell. The
Hasselblad waist-level finder here, shows how bright
metal under these coverings can add "pop". The
Argus C3 gives the same effect at lower cost, if the
Hasselblad isn't in your budget.
Like our other sets, these come pre-cut to fit
precisely, with the same peel-away adhesive backing.
They're also tough, long-wearing and nearly impervious
to scratches and divots. Cotton blends have a resin
coat that can be wiped clean. The full synthetics are
water resistant, and can be dry or wet-brushed clean
